This week, Five Favorite Fotos from Flickr features Poland-born, India-based photographer Maciej (pronounced “Maah-tzee-ey”) Dakowicz. Dakowicz holds a PhD in computer science, but abandoned science to focus on photography. He is one of the founders of Third Floor Gallery in Cardiff, a member of the Wideangle photo agency, the un-posed Polish street photography collective and the international street photography collective In-Public. Maciej’s photos have been widely published and exhibited around the world, shown at photo festivals (including Visa Pour l’Image international festival of photojournalism in Perpignan, France) and he is a recipient of numerous awards. He was profiled among other leading street photographers in the “Street Photography Now” book published by the British publisher Thames & Hudson, who also published Maciej’s first monograph “Cardiff After Dark” in October 2012.
